On Thursday, the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office announced San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster was charged with felony domestic violence, and David Lombardi of The Athletic reported bail was set at $75,000.
The charge stems from a February arrest for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend.
"I'm here to support him. I'm here to support a teammate," Sherman said, per Lombardi.
According to the announcement, Foster is facing multiple felony charges—domestic violence with an allegation he inflicted great bodily injury, forcefully attempting to prevent a victim from reporting a crime and possession of an assault weapon.
What's more, he was charged with misdemeanor possession of a large capacity weapon magazine and could face more than 11 years in prison.
Tom Schad and A.J. Perez of USA Today noted Foster's girlfriend told police he punched her in the head up to 10 times, physically threw her from the house and dragged her via her hair.
"The 49ers organization is aware of today's disturbing charges regarding Reuben Foster," the 49ers said in a statement, via Schad and Perez. "We will continue to follow this serious matter. Reuben is aware that his place in our organization is under great scrutiny and will depend on what is learned through the legal process."
Foster was a first-round draft pick out of the University of Alabama in 2017 and appeared in 10 games as a rookie for the 49ers.
